I would also like to use this opportunity to invite everyone, every Filipino who read this post including our foreigner friends in the Philippines to join us in the big protest action against Con-Ass this coming June 10, 5:00-8:00 p.m. at Paseo de Roxas, Makati. For those who are working in Makati, you may already join the crowd after office hours. However for those coming from different places, you may want to join our contingent at Ayala corner EDSA by 3:00 p.m. Listen to the short speeches and watch more cultural presentations.
Although, we may not like some of the personalities who will join the protest and the alliances built based on this issue are only short-term, we need to show the Administration that we are one in saying No to ConAss! Not during the time of GMA! Yes, I believe there are some provisions in the Constitution that needed changes, but these should be changed to improve the lives of the people and not just to lift the nationalist protection provisions on our economy if it will just benefit the privileged few.
At this time I only remember what some faith-based leaders/philosophers of the recent times have said:
-Martin Luther King
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." -Edmund Burke
This time, we should already make painful choices not the band-aid solutions we did in the past so that others may live decently and humanely. START DENOUNCING THE TRAPO SYSTEM! Make a difference and be involved!
